FREE LUNCH/BREAKFAST

FREE Breakfast and Lunch Meals for ALL Students

Effective tomorrow (Tuesday, September 15, 2020) ALL breakfast and/or lunch meals will be available at NO CHARGE to ALL MSD of Mt. Vernon students physically attending school.

On August 31, 2020, the USDA announced an emergency waiver which allows ALL students to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day at school. The Indiana Department of Education released guidance to Indiana school districts on September 9 allowing us to begin using the waiver effective immediately. Please note: This USDA waiver will be in effect until December 31, 2020 OR until available federal funding from USDA runs out, whichever comes first. Once the waiver ends or funds expire, breakfast and lunch meals will be charged to students normally.

What to Expect: We are not changing the daily menu, the food items offered, or the meal service experience. Students will select the minimum required items to create a meal, and the meal will ring up at no charge. Students can still pay for ala carte items, second entrees, or second meals at current pricing. Families can leave funds in student lunch accounts to be used next semester. To qualify for textbook assistance, though, eligible families must still complete a free or reduced application.

Virtual Students: At this time, we are not yet able to offer this service to our virtual students. The Food Service Department will be developing a workable plan to offer meals to our virtual students in the near future. Stay tuned for that plan!

We appreciate the flexibility allowed by the USDA to help our families, and we thank you for your continued support for Mt. Vernon Schools!

**ALL IN**

Band-1

Athletics are off to a strong start!

ALL IN isn’t a catch phrase, it’s a way of life. ALL IN means you completely invest yourself in what you are doing. It means you demand the best from yourself and those around you. It means you carry yourself with integrity and determination. It means wins and losses matter. 

Over the last year, our athletic teams have promoted ALL IN to our student athletes and it’s paying off. Our football team has started the season undefeated. Our volleyball team is state ranked. Our boys’ and girls’ soccer teams have winning records. Both cross country teams have competed well and dropped times. Girls’ golf finished 3rd out of 13 in the PAC. And our boys’ tennis team is showing improvement in each competition.  

We won’t win every game in every sport this year, but we will be ready to compete in every game in every sport. Our coaching staff has worked hard to prepare for this year. Many of them hosted Zoom workouts with their athletes during quarantine to ensure we didn’t miss a beat.  Once we were able to practice on campus, our athletes fully invested themselves in workouts and weight training to prepare for the year. 

Our head varsity coaches are diligently working with their respective feeder programs to ensure a long lasting culture of success. I encourage families to participate in our youth leagues throughout the year. It is important for our youth athletes to begin learning fundamentals and experience competition. Soon, they will be our varsity athletes competing for championships.

WE ARE BACK!

wegotthi_20200807-171600_1

The MSD of Mount Vernon is excited to welcome our students back in-person and virtually. The energy level of our students and staff this first day of school has been great! We intend to stay in school as long as we can and as much as we can this entire school year. As we move forward this year please remember, WE NEED YOUR HELP.

For families that are attending in-person, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please make sure you are screening your students each day before school. If they have a fever, please keep them home. We understand that childcare is a concern that often drives parents to medicate their children before they send them to school resulting in a reduced fever. We can’t afford to do that this year! The spread of COVID-19 could result in building closure for 2 to 3 weeks. It is much better for everyone if you keep your student home until they are fever free for 72 hours without medication. If your student contracts COVID-19 or has been ordered by the County Health Department to quarantine due to close contact, please contact your school nurse. 

For families that are attending virtually, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please make sure your student is logging in daily and completing assignments on time. As a reminder, elementary virtual classes will be on a bit of a delay in the beginning as the teacher will share lessons and information at the end of each school day. If you experience any technical issues, please make us aware of them so that we may address them. Establish a routine for your student to help keep them on track. Also, please be patient during the first few days of school as data entry occurs and technical problems get ironed out.

This year will be what we collectively make of it. We have great families and we have great teachers. If we all do our part, it will be great school year!
